pthread_barrier_* API implementation
Mon Feb 1 06:42:00 GMT 2016
On rakudo.org () pages, I have noticed that the pthread_barrier_*
POSIX API is missing from Cygwin. I took a look at NetBSD and FreeBSD
implementations of it. It seemed to me that creating POSIX barrier on
top of POSIX mutex and POSIX conditional variable is not that hard ().
Now, the question is whether this is acceptable and whether it should be
part of Newlib or directly part of Cygwin?
Second, if I should pursue that, or if anyone who knows either Newlib or
Cygwin better than I wants to mould the source into an acceptable form.
I would not mind somebody else doing it. :D
I have, in the past, contributed small patches to Cygwin and I had done
the necessary copyright assignment paper work, so copyright should not
be a problem.
